Maintain the ability to make full-length rappels.
When you want to lead with a single dynamic rope but you want to maintain the ability to make full-length rappels if necessary, pack the 8mm Sterling Tag Line Rope. Having this lightweight and versatile cord stashed in your climbing pack could mean the difference between being stuck 10 pitches up when a rogue storms rolls through or having the ability to make a hasty retreat.
- Static construction has a 2.3% elongation and a minimum breaking strength of 3,934 lbs
- Not intended for use as a lead rope
- The use of Tag lines is an advanced climbing technique that requires adequate experience and proper training
- Item #STE0070
- Q & A
Great tag line
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I used this thing to rap from el cap tower and it worked perfectly, when tied to a 10.3ish mm rope. Also used it for rapping in rmnp, and a couple of other times. Personally wouldn't want to rap with smaller diameter than this, simply to avoid excessive rope running through rings with the knot on the thick rope side, and extra stretch when pulling when the knot is on the skinny side. Mostly great.
Only reason for -1 star is it is not exceptionally affordable, or durable (has signs of wear after not tons of use).
I use this as my tag line / haul line.
Light enough you don't notice it on lead, but durable enough to haul heavy loads.
Also use it to set up a single rope jug line. ( although, I might not "recommend" ascending a single 8mm, but it still works fine. )
